US Presidential hopeful Joe Biden has appealed for everyone to remain calm so that he can take his nap.
Mr Biden, 77, is concerned there could be civil unrest over the long, drawn-out election counting process, and any trouble might keep him awake.
Spokesperson Lorraine Fisher, 34, said: “Mr Biden usually takes 40 winks a few times every day, particularly after meals, which all helps him stay alert – just what he needs to be the leader of the free world.
“If he can hear protests, gunfire, looting and sirens outside, he might not be able to get to sleep.
“So, he has appealed for calm.”
Meanwhile, President Trump continues to stoke up anger by claiming the whole election is a fraud. He wants all counting stopped in those states where he is currently ahead.
“Why should everyone who voted expect to have that vote count?” complained Republican campaigner Steve Walshe.
